ALL SAINTS

First time vinyl edition of one of Laraaji’s best loved albums, originally released in 1992 as one of the first releases on the All Saints label.

‘Flow Goes The Universe’ was recorded in Tokyo, Osaka, New York City and the English Lake District at various studio sessions and live concerts and subsequently compiled and augmented by ‘infinite guitarist’ Michael Brook, noted for his collaborations with Brian Eno, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Robert Fripp and David Sylvian.

A suite of luminous ambient pieces that stands amongst Laraaji’s very best work.

Cut as a double album by Stefan Betke (aka Pole) for maximum fidelity and housed in a gatefold sleeve re-designed by David Coppenhall from his original projection-based designs.

Liner note interview with Laraaji conducted by Andrew Parks.

Includes digital download card.

    Brian Eno

    Nerve Net - Reissue

      Reissue of Brian Eno’s 1992 album which found him returning to a more rock-oriented sound, albeit skewed through an aesthetic that is simultaneously playful, funky and claustrophobic and featuring a mixture of vocal and instrumental excursions. Includes contributions from Robert Fripp, Robert Quine and John Paul Jones.

      Brian Eno

      The Shutov Assembly - Reissue

        Reissue of Brian Eno’s 1992 album dedicated to Russian artist and friend Sergei Shutov and a continuation of the atmospheric ambient work found on records such as ‘On Land’ and ‘Thursday Afternoon’. Eno had discovered that Shutov often painted to his music but was unable to obtain many of his records in then-communist Russia. He resolved to collate a tape of previously unreleased material (recorded between 1985 and 1990) to give to Shutov and upon listening himself discovered a previously unnoticed thread that ran through the pieces, creating an unintentional full-length work. Each piece is named after and derived from one of Eno’s audio-visual installations.

        Laraaji

        Moon Piano

          A companion volume to the ‘Sun Piano’ album, this LP was recorded at the same session in a Brooklyn Church. Whereas the former record lent itself to the more uplifting side of Laraaji’s keyboard improvisations, ‘Moon Piano’ explores the more introspective and minimal pieces captured by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs, Mary Lattimore) and edited by Christian Havins (Dallas Acid).

          Laraaji describes this set of tracks as “Contemplative sound painting, embracing quiet tranquil unfolding of nurturing reflection.” In a recent interview with Aquarium Drunkard, Laraaji described the improvisatory process of making both piano albums: “I’d sit down, touch the piano and through free association, also blending it with my prepared mental state, I was able to tune in and affirm my highest sense of presence. The piano became an instrument for the imagination to suggest higher or finer worlds, to suggest a joy, euphoria, bliss, also to suggest silence, minimalism, relaxation, and contemplation. So, all of that music was spontaneous but with those influences shaping and guiding it along the way.”

          Whilst ‘Moon Piano’ almost shades into melancholy with a contrasting night-time vibe to ‘Sun Piano’s daytime joyfulness, certain themes from the first record reoccur - side two’s ‘Pentatonic Smile’ is a longer edit on the central riff underpinning the former album’s ‘Temple Of New Light’.

          ‘Sun Piano’ has been widely praised as a new phase in the new age icon’s career, picked as The Guardian’s contemporary Album Of The Month and the subject of a major feature in The Washington Post and the artist’s special home-recorded lockdown sessions have been broadcast by BBC 6 Music, Resident Advisor and Boiler Room. ‘Moon Piano’ is the second release in a trilogy which will culminate in an extended EP of piano / autoharp duets.

          Dallas Acid are a synth-heavy dreampop trio from Austin, Texas and the first new signing to All Saints Records in a number of years. Having previously collaborated with Laraaji on the acclaimed ‘Arrive Without Leaving’ album from 2018, their unique mix of minimalist electronic music with a big ballad sensibility creates gorgeous, utterly compelling soundworlds.

          “Majestically immersive sound spaces in which to float, wonder, move and trance” - Laraaji

          The sky-gazing wonder of Linda Beecroft’s vocals on the title track recall the breathy intimacy of Mazzy Star, yet draped with almost symphonic banks of synthesizers blinking into infinity, expertly operated by Christian Havins and Michael Gerner, redolent of the deepest end of classic kosmische music.

          Other tracks such as the instrumental ‘Circuit Jungle’ touch upon the Fourth World experiments of Jon Hassell with a mixture of Moog abstractions and FX-drenched acoustic percussion. At other points they touch upon the rain-drenched soundtracks of Vangelis and other more mysterious, electronic arthouse film scores.

          For fans of Peaking Lights, Mercury Rev, Cocteau Twins, Laraaji, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Spiritualized, Moon Duo, Laurel Halo, Panda Bear.

          Bring On The Sun

            A collection of brand new studio recordings, recorded by Davey Jewell (Peaking Lights / Flaming Lips) and mixed by Carlos Niño (Leaving Records). A magical mixtape of tracks that run the full gamut of Laraaji music, from blissed-out percussive jams to reflective vocal hymnals to trance-inducing drones. A perfect Laraaji entry point on his never-ending creative journey through inner light. Available as an 8-track double vinyl LP (with digital download card) and 10-track double CD with ‘Bring On The Sun’ on the first disc and a bonus disc of ‘Sun Gong’, the previously vinyl-only pre-cursor to the main album.

            Laraaji is a musician, mystic and laughter meditation practitioner based in New York City. He began playing music on the streets in the 1970s, improvising experimental jams on a modified autoharp processed through various electronic effects. Brian Eno saw him playing one night in Washington Square Park and invited him to record an album for his seminal ‘Ambient’ series (‘Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance’, released in 1980). Laraaji went on to release a prolific series of albums for a wide variety of labels, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances.

            In recent years he has had his career celebrated extensively, with two All Saints retrospectives - ‘Celestial Music 1970-2011’ and ‘Two Sides Of Laraaji’ - as well as reissues on Glitterbeat and Leaving Records / Stones Throw. He has also collaborated with a new generation of underground musicians such as Sun Araw - their recent album ‘Professional Sunflow’ (Superior Viaduct) being the fruit of the live shows they played together in 2014.

            The Drop

              Reissue of 1997 album ‘The Drop’. Described by Eno as an interpretation of jazz from a vague, alien perspective, ‘The Drop’ also integrates his interests in the melodic yet percussive basslines of Fela Kuti and the complex, labyrinthine melodies of The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Ever the provocateur, on this record Eno defies classification, avoiding association with pop, existent sonic approaches and even music itself.
